Serbia’s defence was fairly good and was hard to penetrate for Ghana but the Serbs need to build more quickly moving forward and be less predictable in attack.

Germany vs Serbia Preview

Germany are well placed after their first round demolition of Australia and they go into this match full of confidence with little pressure unlike their opponents.

Serbia are up against it here against a ruthless German outfit and the pressure on Serbia to perform is very high with a loss almost certain to see them out of the tournament. An early goal is a must for Serbia in this game.
